The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy, where the idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.
This weeks theme is: Clown “Nobody likes a clown at midnight“ and I have chosen:
It by Stephen King.
I just really like the design on this cover, simple yet sinister. The graphic of the nose and mouth looks like it is drawn in crayon which adds to the overall effect.
Thoughts?? Agree?? Disagree??
Now, this is the last Face-Off post that I’m going to be doing for a while, it’s not actually ‘goodbye’ and more ‘see you around’ as I have the themes for the next 6 months and will still occasionally participate in the meme. It’s one of my favourites, seeing the various covers from around the world and for the older books, seeing how the cover aesthetics have changed over time. But, on the other-hand finding books that fit the weeks theme can be a nightmare at times to.
There’s still going to be other awesome bloggers out there that do the meme and I will look forward to seeing what books and covers they choose each week but for me, I’ve decided to step away for a while. One of the best bits about the meme is all the comments and seeing what covers you would all pick and while you won’t see the Face-Off for a while I hope you will still stick with my blog. 🙂
You may ask, if you’re not doing the Face-Off any more Drew, what are you going to do on a Friday? Well, the answer is, wait and see, depending on how much procrastinating I end up doing, I have an idea for a new feature that I will be doing each Friday and it should debut either next Friday or at the latest the Friday after and while it won’t be cover related I hope you will still check it out.
